DESCRIPTION

       cddb-tool is a backend tool for abcde. It is passed information from cd-discid and uses it
       look  up  the  CD  title,  artist,  and   track   information   on   the   cddb   database
       (http://freedb.freedb.org) on the internet.

COMMANDS

       parse [file] option

       Get data out of a cddb file (use "-" for stdin).  Options (use one and only one):

              id     prints disc id

              album  prints album title

              track num
                     prints title of track num

              artist prints artist

              category
                     prints category

              cddbgenre
                     synonym for category

              all    parse file and dumps to stdout in a form sourceable by the shell

       send [file] address

       Mails  file  file  (or  stdin  of  no  file specified) to specified address, using correct
       format.  Category should be one of blues, classical, country, data,  folk,  jazz,  newage,
       reggae, rock, soundtrack, misc.

       template [disc-id] [tracks]

       Generates  a template (empty) cddb file to stdout.  The command line should be essentially
       the output of cd-discid.

       query [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [tracks]

       Looks up disc on server (should  be  of  form  "http://host/cddb/cddb.cgi")  remainder  of
       command  line is in the same form as that returned by the cd-discid program. Uses wget, so
       if you need to use a proxy then just configure wget to do so. user and host will  be  used
       for  identifying  ourselves  to  the  CDDB  server. Outputs response code and entries with
       matching CDDB entries, if successful, from the CDDB server.

       read [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [genre]

       Dumps CDDB entry to stdout. File will contain an extra #CATEGORY= line, which leaves it  a
       valid  CDDB file but which will be recognized by parse and send commands. Uses wget, so if
       you need to use a proxy then just configure wget to do so. user and host will be used  for
       identifying ourselves to the CDDB server.

       help

       Prints usage information.
